I’ve been a writer for three years now so I don’t need much convincing to write. That being said, this perspective is interesting to me and something I never quite thought of. For me what drove me at the beginning was the potential wealth. These days it’s to help the one person that might need to hear these words.
My point is, I never thought about writing for literally no one but myself and my own pleasure. I find joy in the sort of fulfilment of one person potentially reading my work and walking away happier.
I’ll be keeping this tactic in mind and think more about this and what this means to me as I work more on my writing. Thank you.
